The Vienna Tourist Board and Art Basel in Miami Beach announce their inaugural partnership. The collaboration takes form in a green wine bar and an outdoor coffeehouse. To be erected within the fair’s Collectors Lounge, the Grüne Lounge will serve refreshing Viennese wines, grown within the city itself. In the adjacent Botanical Garden, a Vienna Coffeehouse will serve favorite Viennese coffee beverages in playful presentations.

The Grüne Lounge offers a vantage point into two exhibitions at Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna this fall through winter season: “Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and other Treasures” curated by Wes Anderson and his gifted partner Juman Malouf, and the world’s first ever major monograph exhibition focused on Pieter Bruegel the Elder. In spotlighting these two exhibitions as vantage points into the city, the Vienna Tourist Board celebrates ancestral artistic heritage alongside the modern creative pulse that flows through its borders. Here beneath the palm trees not only coffee from Viennese partner Julius Meinl but also a transportive taste of the Viennese coffeehouse culture – which was added to the UNESCO list of intangible cultural assets in 2011 – will be served. #ViennaNow @ViennaInfoB2B @ViennaTouristBoard
